Today, Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division announced Murder on Eridanos, the second and final DLC for The Outer Worlds, on Nintendo Switch will release on September 8.

Murder on Eridanos also raises the level cap by 3, adds new science weapons, armor sets as well as more skill customization options.

DLC for The Outer Worlds requires the base game and the player will have needed to progress past Monarch to access the Murder on Eridanos content.
